really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read in December, 1996

I read this book in 1996. These are notes I made in my journal:
Ego is the center of consciousness; however, consciousness represents only a fraction of the whole psyche. Self and Ego are two separate persons who are present in every "normal" human being.
Self is usually "unseen" (although it sees) ;"unheard"(although it hears); "unperceived"(although it perceives); "unknown" (although it knows); by the limited conscious ego.
Anima: the feminine figure in men.
Animus: the male figure in women.

I am really interested in the works of Carl Jung as compared to Sigmund Freud. His theories speak to me on a higher level than those of Freud.
